Notes & Reviews:

On this recording of four string quartets by the Utrecht String Quartet the spotlight is on one of the most active Dutch composers of the twentieth century. Between 1921 and 1976 Robert de Roos composed more than a hundred works while also serving as a diplomat. For this release the Utrecht ensemble has selected four very different string quartets from his various creative periods. The Utrecht String Quartet is fondly remembered for its complete recordings of the string quartets of Glazunov, Grechaninov, and van Delden. The musicians now prove to be superb advocates on behalf of their countryman Robert de Roos.
